I have been pondering and praying for different family members.
Life is not always rosey, in fact it can be far from it.
With Ray not his best and others phoning to tell me their problems, I began to feel weighed down.
I have a wonderful, God fearing nephew.
He is an inspiration of how to LIVE the Christian faith.
Openly he will tell you, "I don't have all the answers, but Jesus does."
There are no truer words then this. And no more humbler a man, than my nephew.
He can truthfully say, "I can't do it, but Jesus can."
His name is Lance.... and he speaks as directly as an arrow, fired to its target.
He knows there is no time like the presence, to get right with God.
Because, as we all know, there may be no tomorrow.
Lance was not brought up in a Christian Home.
He had a tough up bringing.
And he learned early in life to work hard for what he wanted.
In his younger days, he made many mistakes, and chose wrong pathways.
Then he met Jesus, and his life changed completely.
He will openly begin to cry like a baby as he shares, the conversion in his heart.
Not a Religion, = But a Faith, Love and a Hope in a Risen Real Savour.
Last night as this blessing from God, my nephew shared with me, it Hit home Hard.
That as Abraham trusted God completly, so must I.
I can say, "Oh But, my problems are different to Abraham's.
But are they? Perhaps they are not as hard as his were?
We all think, our suffering is the worst, but is it?
I would not like to be put in the place of Abraham...
I would not like God to ask me to sacrifice my son.
If Abraham could trust God enough to hand over, all that his hopes and dreams were built on.
His precious son, then why can't I.
God did not let Abraham down. Rather, God provided a way out for him.
Won't God then, do the same for us? I will trust. I will believe so...
"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
I feel more Free, from the revelation of this Truth, than I have for years.
With Him in your heart, your life will shine out with love for others.
You will let go of your fears, and trust in Him, the lover of your soul.
Thank you Lance.... I Love You. Blessings Auntie Crystal xxxx

Like Abraham of Old.
An author since 2012 and retired Specialist Registered Nurse. I reside in sub-tropical Queensland, Australia, with my American husband Raymond and our two little dogs. Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens. We are reminded through our faith in Jesus that He will, "Turn our Mourning into Dancing and our Sorrow into Joy." Psalms 30:11. Having personally experienced tough times I know, there is truely no gain without pain. B.N (Aus) B.S.N (U.S.A) Bible College Graduate. Lover of People. WORK PLACE HISTORY... 1.
